The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have singled out the Ambassador’s Residence as an opportunity to showcase a design that fully reflects Britain and its values and are therefore seeking an architect of the highest calibre to develop the concept and then work in collaboration with the Overall Project team during the delivery phase.
The aim of this project is to provide a Residence to modern standards, in compliance with appropriate building codes (UK and Chinese), to provide a platform for the Ambassador to project Britain’s global influence. The building needs also to be seismically resilient.
